I want to make my node command (node index.js for example) repeat every X hours. I want it to run the commandline node ., then after X hours to exit the process and node it again. Any ideas?

More info (AFTER EDIT):

Ubuntu Server 18.04

You could do it with cron job manual or try a systemd timer service. The latter I've used several times. You'll need to create a service and a corresponding timer for it: A timer Example Your script is a service then. So you'd start it with systemctl

  • Oh are there any videos that can help me out through this? I'm pretty new to ubuntu-linux. – Lmao 123 May 26 '20 at 15:53
